Finance Bill, 1936—First Stage.

Leave granted to introduce a Bill entitled An Act to charge and impose certain duties of customs and inland revenue (including excise), to amend the law relating to customs and inland revenue (including excise), and to make further provisions in connection with finance.—(Minister for Finance.)
Bill read the First Time.

When will the Second Stage be taken?

I should like the House to put it down for this day week. It is hoped to circulate the Bill on Saturday, but if by any chance it is not circulated then, we will defer taking the Second Stage until Thursday or Friday week.

Ordered accordingly.
